Minki Kim is the designer of the May Aurifil block, the Santa Barbara Tile Block, and I have to admit I was a bit stumped when I first saw the block. So far I had used black, white, and the suggested color by the designer. But Minki’s suggestion of yellow would make the second yellow block for the year… so I opted to go with chartreuse instead!
I also opted to leave off the embroidered flower and used a fun sewing related novelty print for the wide white piecing instead.
It’s fun to see my collection of blocks growing!
And I am now clearly on track to create my blocks in a rainbow order. I think they will look great together that way.
If you are sewing along, each month one person who links up their pieced block wins a 12 large spool kit, and there are usually 25-30 entries. So don’t forget to link up your version for your chance to win. The versions already shared this month are lovely!
